|Jeni||John Westley Melton|
Thank you for putting the info about his mother's maiden name. I have been researching the Melton's in Rutherford Co for 2 different family trees, John Westley's son John Irvin married one of my great-great aunt's, Fannie Brannon, I have been filling in his tree.
A friend's tree is also descended from an Amanda Melton from the Rutherford County area who married a Tom Lyda & died about 1897. I guess she was born about 1865 guessing by her husband's age, I never found her on any census in Rutherford Co. She married after the 1880 census & died before the 1900 census. One daut's death cert says her name was Catherine, another says she was named Amanda. I have been trying for a long time to locate her on the 1870 census under either name, to no avail. I thought I'd found her once but that Amanda turned out to have married a different man, she survived past 1920. Amanda's family was Melungeon, according to a granddaut, but other than these facts I cannot find her anywhere.
I need to find someone who's an expert on the Melton family, I don't suppose you would know anyone?
Again, thanks for the info on FindAGrave.
